Hafa Adai Partners,

 

The Office of Vocational Rehabilitation (OVR) is pleased to announce the approval of the CNMI WIOA Unified State Plan Modifications for Program Years 2018-2019 beginning July 1, 2018 and ending June 30, 2020.

On behalf of OVR, I wish to take this opportunity to extend our great appreciation to the following agencies/organizations for their valuable contributions towards the State Plan modification process:

 

 

As some of you may know, we continue to receive intensive technical assistance from the Workforce Innovation Technical Assistance Center (WINTAC) in a few areas including Transition and Pre-Employment Transition Services (Pre-ETS). One of the activities included a review of our existing MOU with PSS-SPED, resulting in a revised MOU signed by representatives from both OVR and PSS-SPED on April 2, 2018. The MOU as you know is mandated under IDEA and the Rehabilitation Act, and we believe our amended MOU better reflects the requirements of the laws. The goal of the MOU is for OVR and PSS-SPED to work together to provide more effective services to students/youth with disabilities to facilitate their smooth transition from secondary to post-school activities including employment.

You can find the revised MOU here.

 

This is a working document that is regularly updated as needed. Deadline to submit public comments on the VR State Plan is March 8, 2018
